Public Relations

Public relations are the tools by which institutions build and support their relationships – both with their surroundings and with the public. The main goal of the Moravian-Silesian Region is to steadily strengthen its perception as a modern and active institution with a unique position both at the domestic and the European level.

The Section of Internal Relations and the Section of International Relations both serve as the basic tools for the effective internal and external communication of the Regional Authority and they ensure many activities are carried out. The common objective of both sections is to provide information, build a positive image and thereby enhance their reputation. The Moravian-Silesian Region seeks to meet these objectives by, for example, participating in major events, and also by organising its own interesting events. The general public is kept acquainted with these activities through various media channels.
Through its Crisis Management Section our Region also pays great attention to maintaining and increasing the security of its inhabitants and protecting their lives, their health and their property.

And because the Moravian-Silesian Region is so up-to-date, you will also find all the news from these sections on our Facebook page too!
